Summary

Smoking is a significant cause of damage to health and quality of life specifically for Veterans with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Smoking cessation interventions for this population are lacking. The primary aim of this project is to explore smoking cessation treatment preferences among Veteran smokers living with HIV. The study team will refine the design and content of a smoking cessation treatment for Veteran smokers living with HIV. The intervention uses mobile health and telehealth technology to personalize smoking cessation counseling and medications and provide relapse prevention text messaging.

Description

Although smoking is a significant cause of damage to health and quality of life specifically for Veterans with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), smoking cessation interventions for this population are lacking. The primary aim of this project is to qualitatively explore smoking cessation treatment preferences among Veteran smokers living with HIV. The study team will refine the design and content of an intervention that uses mobile health and telehealth technology to a)individually personalize smoking cessation counseling and pharmacotherapy, and b) provide relapse prevention messaging support. It is a personalized, tailored, multi-component intervention for smoking cessation specifically designed for Veteran smokers living with HIV.

This project is highly significant given that: 1) smoking is prevalent among and particularly harmful for HIV-positive Veterans; 2) there is a dearth of research on smoking cessation for Veterans with HIV; 3) current approaches to smoking cessation in this population are not effective; 4) as the largest US provider of HIV health services, VHA is an ideal setting; and 5) the proposed intervention follows the VA Blueprint for Excellence, which prioritizes mobile health and treatment personalization to increase reach/efficacy.
